What Got Me Out of Bed This Morning

I needed to get up this morning and go for a 4.5 mile run. This always sounds like a good idea to me the night before, but when the alarm goes off at 6:30am I’m not as easily persuaded. Thank goodness that this morning I woke up to this quote a Facebook friend shared with me…

“Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to …do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.”

– George S. Patton, U.S. Army General, 1912 Olympian

That sure did get me out of bed and onto my run. It wasn’t the prettiest of runs, but it felt good knowing I was done with my 4.5 miles by 7:45am. 🙂
